Greek Migration Min: Legislative Initiative to Introduce a “Digital Visa”

February 7, 2021

ATHENS — Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi in an interview with 'Thema' on Sunday presented a legislative initiative in cooperation with the foreign ministry for the introduction of a visa for the "digital nomads", the new global category of workers who work remotely and are looking for attractive destinations to settle.

As he pointed out, "we must create an organized and at the same time attractive environment for the mass arrival of people who choose this technologically advanced form of employment."

The introduction of a special purpose residence permit, "a digital visa", as he characterized it, "will be combined with tax facilities that will lead to more permanent investments," Mitarachi stated, clarifying that the beneficiaries of this new visa must meet certain criteria, mainly income ones.

"The legislative initiative will result in the inflow of know-how, financial and intellectual capital in our country," he concluded.
